Whale Watching Excursion!

Join us to scan the Kona coast for our beautiful & majestic Kohola (Humpback Whales) that frequent our waters in the winter months. We will have 3 hours to observe these amazing creatures as they migrate to Hawaii to birth their calves, mate, rest & play! Come join us to watch these animals in the wild & observe their natural behavior & hear their hauntingly beautiful songs that fill the ocean.

You can opt to purchase individual spots on the boat (up to 6 spaces available max) or if you prefer the luxury and privacy of your own custom guided tour, you can book a private charter. We need a minimum of (4) guests to run the tour.

Being on a small vessel allows for a more personal experience with our crew and more time in the water than the typical “tourist trap” large vessel. Please see our crew page to learn more about our professional and highly qualified team! Scroll down to see what to bring
